Glistening white petals with a maroon purple flame which was much admired at the Chelsea Flower Show on its introduction, Flaming Baltic is a Fringed Tulip. A form which is now separately classified from the Parrot Tulips as the edges have a clear crystalline fringe as opposed to more deeply cut feathered effect of Parrot Tulips. The Fringed Tulips are predominantly lacking the green markings on the outer petals which is quite common in Parrot Tulips. Flaming Baltic will grow to 50cm and will flower in April to May.

Tulips will thrive in almost any type of soil where there is reasonable drainage. During the growing season they like plenty of moisture but the roots must not stand in water. Be careful not to feed tulips during the growing season as this will produce 'leggy' plants. Plant from October until late December 4 inches deep and approximately 5 to 6 inches apart.

Tulip failures are mostly due to damage by slugs and snails. Apply a slug repellant immediately after planting and repeat at monthly intervals until the plants stand well above the ground.
